As we open a new calendar for 2018, here’s a look back a New Year’s postcard sent in late December 1909 to Pearl Bracey of Bridgeport marking the start of 1910. This lovely postcard hints at the festive season with its holly leaves and points to the year ahead with the 1910 half-year calendar pages.
The message reads “Wishing you all a very Merry Xmas & a Happy New Year. Oliver & Bertha”.
From all of us in the Grace Schmidt Room, I’d like to wish everyone a very Happy and Healthy 2018. We look forward to sharing the treasures of the GSR with you and hope that you’ll drop by to see us in the New Year.
